Default Re: Probable allergy to hedgehogs - Allergy treatments?

I am allergic to Kashi, but I've found ways to deal with it. For example, I give him foot baths frequently (the pee/poo irritates my skin) and baths once every 2-3 weeks. I find this helps reduce the amount of irritation. I also keep his cage spotless because it's in my room, and if it gets dirty I'll start sneezing, etc like crazy!

Otherwise, handling your hedgehog more often, I find, helps. On weeks that I handle Kashi more, I notice there is less and less irritation... and on weeks when I handle him less, I find there is more irritation... so yeah... I hope that helps ^_^
